Junior Trump Smears Vindman As 'Leftist Veteran' On Trump TV

Over in Trumpville, they seem to be quite worried about Lt. Col. Vindman's testimony. So worried that they're willing to smear a decorated veteran.

Uday the Stupid aka Donald John Trump Junior opened his mouth and spewed toxic waste across the landscape in order for it to land on Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman while on Fox and Friends Wednesday morning. Clearly they are deeply concerned about the decorated veteran's testimony to the impeachment committees on Tuesday and are pulling out all the stops to discredit him.

“There’s no there there,” Trump Jr. assured viewers. “They do usual thing, they bring in another guy that they believe is beyond reproach. Like they did with Mueller.”

He's a witness to a despicable abuse of power. Mueller wrote a 400-page report about the Trump political enterprise based on facts. Both are beyond reproach.

He goes on to complain that Vindman is "talking to the Ukraine or he wanted to edit the transcript." Note to Junior: It's not THE Ukraine -- Just Ukraine will do. It hasn't been THE Ukraine since the Soviet Union dissolved.

Can we also just say that there is no transcript? It's these kinds of details that turn facts into disinformation, and when you've got a stupid boy like Junior on Trump TV who needs any Russian disinformation campaign anyway?

Kilmeade and Uday go on to make false equivalences with Tulsi Gabbard and Michael Flynn before laying the real smear on Vindman. In the process of defending Tulsi Gabbard, he also outed her as an ally. She is also not a "leftist" as Captain Stupid drives home.

"You only get total absolution if you are a leftist veteran," Uday groused. "Not a veteran, just a leftist. If you’re on their side, you can do no wrong.”

Kilmeade actually had the stones to point out that there's nothing out there which would say Vindman is a leftist, but Junior brushed him off. “Oh yeah, of course, sure," he replied with a rhetorical wave of the hand.

So much nonsense, so little time.

By the way, isn't Junior supposed to be running the business? What is he doing on Trump TV spreading disinformation?
